TikTok responds to misinformation complaints, claims progress
September 28, 2022
In other areas, conservative watchdogs have accused TikTok of a left-leaning bias in deciding what to censor.
Last year, Washington, D.C.-based Accuracy in Media reported that several of TikTok’s biggest teen influencers promoted a “Protect the Arctic” campaign without disclosing they had the same talent agents.
The media watchdog says TikTok has ignored calls for ethical transparency about liberal political advocacy groups paying teen users with millions of followers to create videos.
“Recent stories have shown a consistent pattern of left-wing groups trying to pay children to spread misinformation on social media,” said Adam Guillette, Accuracy in Media’s president.
